12 CHICKS at the SAME TIME!!!

Well, here is my first time raising chickens. I picked the Light Brahma Pullets for both their egg laying and their meat. These are day old chicks I have brooding temporarily in a small dog cage. They should be ready for their bigger brooding setup in the chicken coop in a couple weeks. The plan is to raise these hens for two years and then butcher. At one year old I will introduce a new flock and tag the yearlings so I know which ones will be ready for butcher every year there after.

When the weather is nicer I will snap a picture of the chicken coop setup I have. Now with the chickens here, the fruit trees and bushes planted and the vegetable garden coming together, looks to be a decent year for being more self sufficient. Wish me luck!

Anyone else raising chickens?

All I can say is those things are canibals! If one bleeds you have to seperate it, otherwise they will kill it.

Have fun!

Anyone else seeing the original image I posted in the OP? Photo bucket seems to be having a major issue that's FUBAR so I linked it again using tinypic.

Edit*****

Deleted the img from photo bucket, seemed to affect my avatar and my signature line too, but now it seems fine...idk.....

I heard about this but I assumed that this was typical with all chickens, right? Everything I've read says the Brahmas are the friendliest breed and often make great pets as well as being a good all around egg/meat breed. I've got them under watchful eye though.

I was just speaking in general about chickens. They are fun to play with when they are chicks and still easy to catch. Especially if you have kids. Just make sure they wash their hands afterwards.

Chickens don't have hands.

Chickens don't have hands.

Do the chickens have large talons?

I have chickens and ducks, but use them for eggs, not meat. I have some that lay regular white eggs, and some that lay easter egg colored eggs (pink, blue, green).
